UN Ambassador Nikki Haley solidified America's support for the Iranian protestors during a press conference outlining her 2018 priorities, and said the U.S. will call for an emergency session on Iran in New York and in Geneva at the Human Rights Council.

"In these first days of 2018, nowhere is the urgency of peace, security, and freedom being more tested than in Iran. We applaud the tremendous courage of the Iranian people ... This is a precise picture of people rising up against an oppressive dictatorship. The UN must speak out. We must not be silent. The people of Iran are crying out for freedom."
